Cleveland: Tremont: Development and News

Recommended Posts

It looks pretty good. I like how the pillars evoke the dark brick apartments just west of this building. Also, I wonder how tall it is. Not sure if it's just the scale but it looks short for 4 stories.

The site plan is great. Looks like 15 surface parking spaces are spread along an access drive, so no real lot. Love buildings that fill corners like this. No silly plaza or parklet.

Agreed. And the entrances along Fairfield should bring some activity to the long side of the building. Thumbs up to the site plan.

Is he really going to plaster Brickhaus across the roof of the building?  Mother of god.  It's kind of a funny name (at first) but doesn't need to light up the night sky.

This building is in the local landmark district, so I highly doubt the Landmarks Committee will approve that addition.

Love this!!  Fills in a dead area and adds customers to three businesses!

 

Was just having the same thought.

 

Shout out to Loop Records. Love that place.

Received a printout in the mail a couple days ago depicting some big plans for the corner of W7th and Jefferson (two Southern lots).  The Southeast lot would contain 5 attached townhomes facing W7th.  The Southwest lot would contain a 4 story apartment building with underground parking and a ground floor retail space of about 2,000 square feet.  It's going to be reviewed by the block club next week, but I can tell you that I think it looks pretty good.  These plans would obviously require the demolition of the existing homes.

Jefferson is going to see some nice development with the Towpath cutting thru east of West 5.  You'll be able to bike to East bank of flats soon enough!

As promised.  Here are a few photos of the plans.  Primitive I know but it's the best I can do for now.

 

There's no rendering of the townhomes, but they do provide a site plan.

Just got to see the new tow-path area right under the inner belt bridge by the Cleveland sign in Tremont.  What an amazing difference!  This tow path extension is really having a transformative effect.

I wonder if we'll see any development on those lots between the towpath and the houses on W 5th.  Looks like the a lot of the land is privately held.  Likewise, the lots on the west side of W 3rd street backing up to the trail seem a lot more interesting with the Towpath in your backyard.

The four white units appear to have tiny "Juliet" balconies. I can't think of a more wasteful design feature.

 

Do they have those due to some coding or regulation? Is it a cost saving measure? Or do some people just like them?

It's hard to tell from the overhead shot, but it looks like the balcony is 4-5 ft deep. It's still small, but more useful than a typical juliet balcony which is barely more than a railing behind the door.

The 2nd floor balconies are 4' deep with the glazing being accordion panels to open completely to the exterior.

 

Ah. That's better; they should improve the rendering.

Rendering is spot on...

 

Let me guess, you drew it?

Does anyone know what is going in at Starkweather and Scranton.  It looks like something being constructed by Scalish Brothers but I cannot find any information on their site.

^ Where exactly? The only vacant land near that intersection is adjacent to Tremont Taphouse. I heard they were planning to expand when they bought and demolished the house south of their parking lot, but it's only served as additional parking since then. I just assumed the expansion rumor was incorrect.

Scalish is renovating a great looking brick Federal on that corner. I'm very excited to see what the finished result is there.

You have to hand it to those guys considering they find a way to partially demo masonry and rebuild it while other developers only seem to be able to demolish the entire building and squeeze a bunch of cement board & ally clad town homes because that's what the "economy" dictates.

Kudos to Scalish for preserving and upgrading the housing stock that makes Tremont distinct! I'm pretty sure they manage to make a well deserved profit in the process.

This project is made possible by the City's Storefront Renovation Program, used to renovate and restore dilapidated retail and mixed use structures in the City. The end game for this building is to restore the storefront to a glass pane system and really open up that corner.

 

I second the praise for Frank and his crew, they do great work. They just wrapped up the Literary Tavern (formerly the literary cafe). Attached is a before and after.

This is at 2489 W7th. The brick house on the left is still under construction, and absolutely massive. The owner combined two parcels and it punches through the entire block to W6th. Apparently it's a spec house, and I expect will sell for a huge price. Midway though there's a two story all glass courtyard, and the sides are being clad in cedar and steel. Right next door construction just started on another house (or possibly multi family, is anyone aware?). There was a crane out last week lowering giant prefab concrete slabs for the basement walls.

To the right of the brick house will be two townhomes that look identical to the four already built around the corner at Marquardt and W. 6th (you can see the rear of them, the white buildings in the background of your pic). All 6 units are connected by a common drive off of 6th.

The house on W7th is not being built on spec, there is a buyer on board. Project should be done in the coming months.
